Marlene R. Yesquen
I am honored to be an attorney. I am thankful every day for the ability to use my legal knowledge, skills, and expansive experiences to help others. I advocate for injured individuals in serious accidents, disabled individuals in need of Social Security disability benefits, and injured workers in Oregon. I help people try to regain their life and livelihood after traumatic injuries or health conditions. As the daughter of immigrant parents from Peru, I was taught at a young age there is strength in helping others. My own family experienced work injuries and health problems that impacted their livelihoods. I know firsthand how scary it can be if you are injured or have a severe health condition that can change your life forever. I recognize the stress this causes families and am ready to assist.
I am fortunate to be bilingual and enjoy the ability to help my clients in Spanish and English. I understand I may be the first attorney my clients have ever hired. I do not take this lightly. I value honesty and service. It is important to me that my clients understand their options and the decisions they make in their case. It is more important for me to be able to help my clients get the best outcomes in their matters, because I understand how it will impact their lives.
I earned my law degree from Lewis and Clark Law School. During law school, I clerked in Portland for the law firm of O’Donnell & Clark LLP where I gained valuable experience in discrimination and sexual abuse claims, and I was a recipient of the Presidential Management Fellows Program. I earned a Master’s Degree in Public Administration from New Mexico State University. I attended Randolph-Macon Woman’s College and received my bachelor’s degree with a major in Political Science while also clerking for Virginia Legal Aid Society.
After law school, I worked at the Center for NonProfit Legal Services in Southern Oregon where my practice focused on assisting low-to-moderate income residents in civil litigation matters such as landlord-tenant, and consumer protections. I worked at the firm of Frohnmayer, Deatherage, Jamieson, Moore, Armosino & McGovern as a defense attorney representing insurance companies and their policy holders, so I understand claims from both sides. I received valuable experience working for the firm of Black, Chapman, Webber & Stevens as a managing attorney helping clients with their Social Security disability claims, workers’ compensation claims, and personal injury matters. I then had my own firm, Yesquen Law, before joining forces with Hollander, Lebenbaum Gannicott and Patrick in 2022 to continue to grow my civil litigation practice.
